The Packers’ running back is destroying the Dolphins’ defense in the early going.

Aaron Jones is having one of the best starts to a football game that a running back can imagine.

On the Packers’ first offensive series, he touched the ball four times for 54 yards. On the second, he accounted for 71 yards on three plays, eventually cashing in with a two-yard touchdown to give the Packers a 14-3 lead on the Miami Dolphins.

Jones broke out a huge run on the first play of the series, taking a handoff up the middle and splitting the defense for a big gain. Once he reached the second level, Jones angled to the sidelines, eventually being taken out of bounds at the four-yard line by defensive back Minkah Fitpatrick.

Take a look at Jones’ ridiculous acceleration here:

Jones carried the ball for two yards on the next play, then broke the plane of the goal line on his third straight carry, scoring a touchdown.

Jones currently has five carries for 98 yards and the touchdown, as well as two receptions for 27 yards.
